Efficient Power Conversion has announced a series of three webinars on GaN technology covering reliability, motor drive design, and DC-DC conversion applications.
The first of which is 'GaN Device Reliability - Proven More Robust than Silicon' on August 3, 2022, 10:00 AM PDT. In this initial webinar, EPC will discuss a physics-based lifetime model supporting evidence to project an eGaN device's lifetime under gate stress overall voltages and temperature ranges. Also, a first-principles mathematical model describes the dynamic RDS(on) effect in eGaN FETs from the fundamental physics of hot carrier scattering into surface traps. This model is most useful for predicting lifetimes' overall voltages and temperatures in more complex mission profiles. It will finally look at field reliability data generated over four years and 226 billion hours of operation, most of which are on vehicles or used in telecommunication base stations.
The second webinar is 'Design Smaller, Lighter, More Efficient Motor Drives with Useful GaN-Based Reference Designs' on August 17, 2022, 10:00 AM PDT. In this webinar, EPC discusses: EPC's GaN FETs and ICs suitable for motor drive applications and accompanying reference designs and evaluation tools; how to accelerate the design process by using EPC's motor drive reference designs; and practical design considerations to prioritize performance metrics
The third webinar is 'Design DC-DC Converters with Higher Efficiency, Smaller Size, and Lower Cost with Useful GaN-Based Reference Designs' on September 1, 2022, 10:00 AM PDT. This webinar will cover EPC's GaN FETs and ICs suitable for DC-DC conversion applications and accompanying reference designs and evaluation tools; DC-DC reference designs for multiple topologies and power levels; how to accelerate the design process by using EPC's DC-DC reference designs; and practical design considerations to prioritize performance metrics.
